A time for poetry, dance

Dancing and musical poems will take center stage 1 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, April 7, at Storybook Theatre of Hawaii in Hanapepe.

The dances and poems will be taught in a simple form that anyone can do and enjoy, say organizers.

“They will include words from many of our world’s traditions, with emphasis on creating peace in ourselves, between us, in our community, for our earth,” said a press release.

Some of the probable cultures represented will be the ancient earth-based mother, East Indian vedic, Christian mysticism, Buddhist, Native North American, Maori, Mayan and, of course, Hawaiian.

“The emphasis is on joyfully praising the beauty within us and all around us with our voices and movement,” the release said.

It is free, and part of a weekend-long celebration in Hanapepe.
